Overnight Oats – the quiet breakfast champion

overnight oats kiwifruit

Although I love an extravagant and big breakfast, the reality is that most days I simply eat overnight oats. They’re delicious, take 5 minutes the night before to prepare and give me lots of energy in the morning.

I’m a big fan of overnight oats. If you follow me on Instagram you’ve probably noticed that already!

The recipe I’m sharing with you today is my go-to. I make these oats multiple times a week and am yet to get bored of them (which will never happen because these oats are awesome and delicious and you should make them for brekkie tomorrow!). If you don’t have some of the ingredients, then you can easily swap them out for others. You can add your favourite nuts and seeds, and you can leave out ingredients that you don’t like.

In the morning, I like to top my oats with fresh fruit and peanut butter. Sometimes I also add a little coconut yoghurt and if I have fresh mint in the garden, then I’ll add some mint leaves too. Again, you can make it your own and top your oats with whatever your heart desires.
